Clouds/Sun ~ Turkey Vulture ~ Mike ~ Self-Centered Parents ~ Retirement Places ~ Fun Quiz ~ Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Pie ~ Baby Birds ~ Red Rose Day

Good 48ยบ clear sunny morning.

So, yesterday the clouds were dark

then they were breaking up and the sun was coming through and we heated to the mid 80ยบs! 

This turkey vulture was flying around wayyyyyyyyyyyy up there....

Mike came over yesterday and put the new battery in the riding lawnmower and mowed! 

He also trimmed some dead loose branches off several trees.

My Kristen works for the San Gabriel School District as a school secretary. Last day of school for the kids was last Thursday. She has another week of office work. So, last Friday a stupid parent drops her kid off at school! DUH. Then yesterday morning she got a phone call from a parent that her child was sick and won't be attending school. WHAT??????? Not only that, the kid wasn't even enrolled in the school this year!!! Are there any parents out there who PAY ATTENTION to what is going on with their children??????????????

This is a riot. Shared by email pal Mike Cipolla ....
I love math questions … this one really works.  It will take you only about ten seconds and, amazingly, it will reveal your all-time favorite movie.  DO NOT cheat.  DO YOUR math, THEN compare the results on the list of movies at the bottom.  You will be AMAZED at how scary true and accurate this test is:
1.  Pick a number from 1-9.
2.  Multiply that number by 3.
3.  Add 3.
4.  Multiply by 3 again.
5.  Your total will be a two digit number.  Add the first and second digits together to find your favorite movie (of all time) in the list of 17 movies below:
Movie List:
  1.  Gone With the Wind
  2.  E T
  3.  Blazing Saddles
  4.  Star Wars
  5. Forrest Gump
  6.  The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
  7.  Jaws
  8.  Grease
  9.  The Nancy Pelosi Resignation Speech

... Now, isn't that something?  How did you do that?
If you're a fan of peanut butter pie, then you'll love this extra creamy spin on a classic. You see, the whipped topping makes for an airy filling that's full of peanut buttery goodness and peanut butter cups in this
Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Pie.

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped peanut butter cups, divided
  • 1 (9-inch) chocolate pie crust
  1. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat peanut butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth. Fold in 3 cups whipped topping and 3/4 cup peanut butter cups. Spoon mixture into crust. Top with remaining whipped topping and remaining peanut butter cups.
  2. Chill 8 hours or overnight, until firm.

Each year on June 12, people in the United States observe National Red Rose Day. It honors the flower that is a symbol of love and romance, the red rose.
The June birth flower is the rose.
Red roses were used in many early cultures as decorations in wedding ceremonies and wedding attire.  It was through this practice that, over the years, the red rose became known as a symbol of love and romance. The tradition of giving red roses as the strongest message of love is still practiced today.
In June, red roses are in bloom in flower gardens across the United States, and their beauty and sweet scent fill the air with happiness.

Mine on the side of the house were pretty, but with the horrendous winds and pouring rains we had, they are pretty much done!
